What are the red eggs on the underside of my hollyhock leaves and how do I get rid of them? The plant foliage is dying and turning brown but the flowers have not bloomed yet.

There are a wide number of pests that could occasionally attack hollyhock, as well as foliar problems such as fungus and diseases. You might want to remove the eggs and any discolored foliage as soon as you find them. In the fall, too, be very careful to clean up and remove all of the frost killed foliage to try to limit the number of pests and diseases that could overwinter in the garden.
